How I’m preparing for the upcoming birthday
I actually up early enough for the first time in a couple of weeks to whip out a Monday Listicles! Plus,I’m not grumpy and hey after I get this done I may even whip out a coffee cake for the morning…or I may just sit here and sip my coffee..ehh I’m not gonna push it.
This week’s Listicles topic is brought to you by Robbie
This week it is ALL THINGS BIRTHDAY RELATED.
Seeing as I hit 33 weeks pregnant this week there is only one birthday that is really at the forefront of my mind. The birthday of little Miss Adrienne. Seeing as this is the first time I’ve given birth in 8 years I feel like a first time mommy all over again. I keep thinking of little things I need to get done or take care of before she shows up. People keep telling me…don’t worry you have time. Until I tell them I have 6 other kids,then they understand my need for organization,or they faint in shock.
So here we go:
10 Things I’m preparing for/looking forward to for Miss A’s birthday
1. The emergency contact list for the kiddos…it finally made it up on the fridge this week.Seeing as most of my labor will be done at home we have gone over with the kiddos many many times that if mommy should say you need to call someone start with Brandon and work your way down.Hopefully my parent’s RV will be on the property and I won’t have to worry too much,oh and that Brandon will be home for most of it as well…but we all know how fast labor can change.
2.The SHE”S HERE phone list for Brandon to send out the first text/call. I keep telling him oh you’ll have to call this person…I suppose in this day and age of twitter and facebook I can just announce it there and reach everyone at once,but there are still certain people who deserve the first calls.
3.Registering beforehand for the hospital…just mailed it off yesterday.
4. Packing the hospital bag. I know I know I still have about 7 weeks,but seeing as Ms Holly was 3 weeks early…I get a little nervous.
5.My first all natural birth…I CAN do this I WANT to do this. I couldn’t think of a more supportive partner to have through an all natural birth.The people we have chosen to be with us all love and support us so as long as I don’t go into super freak out mode I should be fine right?RIGHT?!?!
6. Holding this little girl skin to skin after months of feeling her move around inside of me.
7.Seeing what she looks like. Her last ultrasound picture was so clear but nothing beats actually getting to SEE her!
8.Bringing her home to her 6 other siblings and bringing this family closer together.They are all pretty excited to get to meet her.
9.Those first moments of her birthday when it will be just Adrienne,her daddy,and myself. I cannot even tell you how much I am looking forward to this moment.
10. Never sleeping again…ok I’m not looking forward to this but I’m definitely preparing myself for it.I’m already picking out different series on Netflix to help me get through the long night time hours.
So there you have it 10 ways I’m preparing for this upcoming birthday.
